You could remove it from its casing and remount the LCD so the whole thing would fit in a slim drawer when you slide it out you can fold the screen up. Use it for iTunes. Maybe you could use it as a DVD player too. Though I guess the line will spoil that unless you have a firewire clamshell and then you can mirror to an external screen.
You can add a remote via RF or bluetooth with a USB adaptor.
Probably not so expensive to replace the LCD if you fit it yourself. And it may just be the display cable.
Unfortunately the only way I know to check if its the display cable or the LCD panel, is to get another ribbon cable which you know is good, and replace it. If you don't want to disassemble it more than once, you can fire it back up without putting it entirely back together.
I had one running without its top case and keyboard earlier.
